I love my KitchenAid stand mixer, but I can’t help but wonder if I’m using it correctly. Sometimes my chocolate chip cookies bake up like rocks, or my cakes don’t rise. And sometimes it sounds like the attachment is scraping the bowl. What gives? I thought this machine was supposed to do all the hard work for me. Any tips?
